at what's happening funding the government you have obama care changes about to kick in. they are suffering. we found out as you know, steams you about exemptions congress got because of the obama care ruling. you're right. most americans can't take a vacation. most americans are working part time trying to make ends meet. a lot of americans are pushed onto food stamps. to see that type of picture, that's a horrible optic. >> what i don't get. it's hard to get access to the president, hard to get pictures. i post on greta wire, most the president out at the golf course here but they never see him. they are holding someplace. it's hard when the president is having private time with his family or golfing we get pictures. this would have to have been worked out so they could get it. wouldn't you think they would think the last thing he wants is for the american people to see him doing this. of course he's playing golf but to get caught on camera. >> that's what leadership is. when i was a leader, "it was always how do you want your soldiers to see you? you don't want soldie
that putin, yes, could have made obama look bad in a few ways, meeting face-to- face, in ways that -- i mean, now, if you look at it from the outside, it's almost like obama is beating putin in a political race, and putin is demanding a debate, and the front-runner has no reason to meet with him. we're beating putin economically, we're exporting oil to europe when he wants to be doing it. so putin brings him into the country and somehow brings the snowden factor out there, which can only make obama look bad. no. obama has nothing to gain, lots to lose. not surprised he cancelled it. >> i'm not surprised he cancelled it either. we have to understand what putin is like. this guy, putin, is one tough cookie. he came out of the kgb. he was the head of a lot of their, shall we say, undercover activities. he was a very tough guy that he was able to take over that country, the way he did, at the age he did. those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't. we have to be very careful about dealing with this guy. we cannot give him the feeling that he can push us around. i think this is exactl
some conservatives and president obama over his description of vladimir putin. but is the president really wrong to call putin out? karl rove will answer that question. how i live, man. doing my thing. you know this is the way i want to live and i don't see anything changing. >> bill: that man wants to live on food stamps which he is getting even though he refuses to work. a fox news investigation that sem bare wassing the federal government. >> serious. awesome. >> bill: caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. huh i'm bill o'reilly. the thanks bore watching tonight. the issue dividing americans the subject of talking points memo. whether it's obama care, food stamp explosion, punishment of convicts or a myriad of other social issues, the big catch among americans is between those like me who believe in personal responsibility and self-reliance and those who will not make judgments on behavior and want the federal government to provide support and solace to those who cannot or will not compete in the american marketplace or obey the law. let's
regulatory reform that we can do than to repeal every single word of obama. [ cheering ] and that reaction right there shows -- >> john: because those evangelicals know the one thing jesus was known for is taking away affordable healthcare for the poor. it is red meat for the crowds but the president wasn't the only target. both cruz and santorum took swipes at mitt romney's failed 2012 campaign while others wrung their hands over the g.o.p.'s shaky future. if recent history is our guide, they could have ample reason to fear. dan balz is chief correspondent at the "washington post," also the author of the highly praised essential new book "collision 2012", obama versus romney and the future of elections in america. he joins us now from washington, d.c. dan, what a pleasure. thank you so much for being here on "viewpoint." >> john, thank you. >> john: congratulations to all of the acclaim your book has received. as you know, this weekend in iowa, both santorum and cruz criticized the romney campaign for its use of the catchphrase "you did build that." their argument it was another instance
of the obama administration's most vocal critics. in san francisco eric holder introduced new policies that would alter the way federal prosecutors and federal judges handle drug cases steering them away from mandatory minimum sentences. the goal, keep nonviolent and low level offenders out of prison, there by easing massive overcrowding and reducing the cost to taxpayers. >> as a society we pay much too high a price. our system fails to deliver outcomes that deter crime, keep us safe and ensure those who pay their debts have a chance to become productive citizens. >> the smart on crime addition is getting widespread praise on capitol hill. it fits nicely with bipartisan legislation already in the works. during his speech eric holder singled out a handful of lawmakers, among them kentucky senator rand paul who is co-sponsoring a bill that would give judges more flexibility in sentencing. afterwards senator paul returned the favor saying, quote, i'm encouraged the president and attorney general agree with me that mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent offenders promote injustice and
crime sentences, obama white house ordered federal prosecutors to revmp statut to help shield certain drug offensers from the mandatory sentences without congressional approval, here is attorney general holder today speaking before the american bar association. >> i have to today mandated a modifition of the justice department charges policy so certain low-level, nonviolent drug aend toers wits offensers o drug cartels or gangs. lou: how will our attorney general fine drug offenders who use drugs that have not beenn@ provided by as he put it large scale organizations, gangs and cartels. does not their useie them to those trial organizations and enterprises? this administration displaying in some cases utter disregard for legislative process with which to changeaw, last month president suspended mandate portion of his signature healthcare l, and defied congress, and dared congress to stop him, say, i'm not concerned about their opinions, very few of them by the way are lawyers much less constitutiol lawyers issu as i noted them a third of the house are lyerslmost half in the senate. bu
described are also people who went to work for barack obama and helped swing the election. for me there's another interesting component, which is eric holder, who you mentioned a minute ago. he's been at the center of progressive complaints about the -- now he has a chance to redeem himself a bit. we saw it yesterday, him coming out with this push against mandatory minimums, now with a chance to move ahead, it's like a real tipping point that is possible for holder's legacy over the next year or two. >> we're going to talk about the question of race, and in a bit, but to the point of the obama coalition and hillary's appeal to the obama coalition, i will read an excerpt from "the washington post" shawn sullivan says -- clinton can afford to keep a low public profile, but she simply can't be a nonfactor on the big issues of the day. voting rights is one, a topic over which she could begin to make her case. >> yeah, i think it's fascinating, back in 2007, 2008, the big divide that hillary clinton and barack obama were trying to divide up the african-american votes, and it flipped dramatic
. that's how one republican is describing changes to obama care, creating a loophole and potentially higher bills for you. this is "special report." good evening, i am shannon bream in for bret baier. there are new questions about exceptions to the health care law, involving exemptions in washington and concessions for insurance companies. we have fox team coverage. jim angle reports on the double standard of creators and implement ors of obama care not having to participate. we begin with correspondent wendell goler traveling with the president in martha's vineyard that could leave you paying more out of pocket. good evening, wendell. >> reporter: good evening, shannon. the concession involves the cap on out of pocket costs to go into effect next year, it could double costs for people that use one to manage medical coverage and another for prescription drug benefits. as the president settled in to vacation life on martha's vineyard, word of a new obama care concession to insurance companies, involving the $6300 a year cap on deductibles and co-pays that was supposed to go into effec
. the first, attorney general eric holder, the nation's top cop and a leading civil rights figure in the obama administration announcing a major overhaul to ease government drug sentencing guidelines. holder was clear this isn't just about perform reforming an outdated, inefficient and expensive war on drugs, he said. this is about reforming a judicial system of inequality system that will abuses blacks and minorities. this is holder speaking how they're disproportionately involved in that system. >> we also must confront the reality that once they're in that system, people of color often face harsher punishments than their peers. in recent years, black male offenders have received sentences nearly 20% longer than those imposed on white males convicted of similar crimes. this isn't just unacceptable. it is shameful. >> now, the second case in new york city where a federal judge demolished the city's tactics surrounding a controversial stop and frisk law, the law has become a flash point for racial tensions nationwide not unlike stand your ground in the trayvon martin case. in her ruling, the j

[applause] >> my question was not about the they. it was about exemption. he granted it to you at your entire staff very you are exempt from this program. and then to all of the union said that he did. 10 different unions. >> what happened in >> what happened in congress was in the bill. members of congress and the staff are the only employees in congress that lose their health insurance and have to go into the exchange. after we wrote it, we noticed that we're getting health insurance as a benefit. we go into the exchange again if we still want to get some benefit. to have the insurance. got now, i'm not sure they the final decision. the result is we would be no worse off than before we went in the exchange. that's what's going on in congress. i thought you were talking about the ememployer mandate. >> no, the exemption. > thank you. >> yes, sir. >> my name is thurgood, and i don't particularly care for health insurance, but i, too have to go and read about health insurance. so i learn a littl
, president obama, eric holder, or the naacp, but over the weekend, rev. jesse jackson stepped up to the plate and said this. >> we tried to make contact of the family of the kids because we should discourage people attacking people, whether black, white, white, black, people should stop attacking people. you must learn to live together respectfully in a civilized way, and if it comes black white white black, it makes matters worse, it does not make it better. >> took awhile, but give credit where credit is due. ref recommended jesse jackson steppedd made a comment. >> he was in africa and had been away. he said black white, white black, he went to the core of the thing and said doesn't matter what color you are, you have to stop attacking each other, which is not a bad thing to say. that's the jesse jackson i remember. i have seen the good jackson, the bad jackson over the years, seen him many times, talked to him many times. this is where he's good at doing things like this. glad to see he did it. >> any surprise we haven't heard from the others? >> no, and where is al sharpton, he has a pro

at the continental united one happened under the obama administration. so a number of people are saying when you look at these mergers, you can't allow those two to go through, the one that created the new delta and the new united, and then stop american and u.s. airways from getting together. but the doj is now saying listen, these four major airlines, american, united, delta, and then southwest, the new southwest, when it combines with airtran ata, will have 80% of the flights. we all knew they were going towards this eventually. so why were the previous two major mergers approved and this one being blocked? that's what bothers a lot of people. you can't start the rules one way and then change them mid-course. >> unless you thought you'd have a point where there was just not enough competition and these guys were way too late. >> that's true. that is the argument as well. >> thank you, phil. >> okay. >> so what impact would this merger really have on the consumer? let's find out straight from the source of a lawsuit that rocked the airline industry today. here with us on the phone is joseph alioto,
though a federal judge ruled that it violates people's constitutional rights. >> if holder and obama want to investigate a police department, why don't they look at chicago? >> this single act alone is enough to cause it to go in another direction. it's another step closer to making new york city like detroit. >> we've heard this kind of talk before. but america is a different country. voters are rejecting 40 years of gop scare tactics. voters are supporting the obama administration's move to end severe mandatory sentences for low-level nonviolent drug offenders. of course, over at fox, they don't get it. >> they're not pot smokers. they're not pill poppers. >> wait a second. 50%. but the thing, what if the kid has a drug problem? >> then you get the kid to rehab or lock him in the basement or do what you have to do. that's what parents do. >> who thinks that one of these elderly people who have been in prison for a mandatory minimum sentence, that they're going to get out and they're not going to be on public assistance? of course they are. >> so we should keep people in prison to keep t
attacks anyway. i'm jake tapper. this is "the lead." the world lead, president obama, secretary of state hillary clinton and others blamed him for the deadly attacks on the compound in benghazi. they were wrong but he went to jail anyway for violating the terms of his parole. the mystery man behind the film "innocence of muslims." and they say their stop & frisk" policy fights crime. but they say the real crime is being black. and the money lead, it looks like the world has found a cure for its blackberry addiction. now you can't give these things away. what happened? >> good afternoon, everyone. welcome to "the lead." some movement on the terror case that paralyzed the nation. while dzhokhar tsarnaev is awaiting trial in a prison sell, two of his best friends were in court today, both 19-year-old natives of kazakhstan studying in the united states pleaded not guilty today to charges of obstruction of justice. they were arrested following the bombing after police said they took key evidence from tsarnaev's dorm room following the bombing. susan what can you tell us? >> jake, the hearing
. as it is revealed that the obama administration has quietly delayed another major provision of the federal health care overhaul. so quietly one might think the obama administration has been hiding that delay from the media and from the american people. the obama white house forgoing a mandatory cap on insurance company deductibles. the obama administration, as a result, will not put the limit on the out-of-pocket cost for individuals until they now say 2015. health and human services has given insurance providers the go-ahead to charge whatever they want. this was contained in a february department of labor regulatory report without comment like much of the health care law, it has been dellyed by the president. listening to kathleen sebelius earlier today, you would've thought that the obamacare rollout is going smoothly that her department was simply flawless in execution. >> we are implementing the law. we call it the law. not a political discussion. it is really the law of the land. i think that it is our job to make sure that people are aware of what is coming. aware of the benefits. lou: typ
selfs from obama care. the american people good for them, why isn't it gore g.for them? >> we have these governing master minds this professional ruling class. when you look at framers and understand founding there was never supposed to be a professional ruling class there was rotation in and out of office that. is why senators served six years. congressmen two years but they didn't have term limits back then because it never occurred to them you'd have senators serving 36, 40 years. it doesn't occur to them. they felt strongly in the citizen legislature. it is interesting. thomas jefferson not at the constitutional convention wanted complaints about the constitution and he ended up supporting it was that issue of rotation. he thought members shouldn't serve more than one year. interestingly just on that subject, in most 1800s members of the house served two years that is it. 50% was turn over. i hear people saying what about continuity. about what? this? >> sean: state right there. it's called restoring american republic we're going to have a full hour with mark s in the way to sa
president obama said this, his attorney general, eric holder, was apparently listening. >> we all know that young african-american men disproportionately have involvement in criminal activities and violence. for a lot of reasons. a lot of it having to do with poverty. a lot of it having to do with disruptions in their neighborhoods, in their communities, failing schools, and all those things. and that's no excuse, but what we also believe in is that people, everybody should be treated fairly and the system should work for everyone. >> today the obama administration's attorney general announced important new changes in prosecutorial guidelines involving low-level non-violent drug offenses because federal law is littered with oppressive and unreasonable mandatory minimum sentences for drug offenses, those mandatory minimum sentences can only be changed by congress. realizing that this congress will never take action in this area, the attorney general has decided to instruct his prosecutors to measure the charges they bring in criminal cases against the sentencing rules for those cases. t

with d.c.'s fire and ems department could have put the health of president and obama and the first lady at risk. we have learned the ambulance scheduled to accompany president obama, broke down, which led to multiple problems. >> as president obama travels to and from the white house, the number one concern of his motorcade is keeping the president safe. one critical constant is a d.c. fire zms ambulance, typically medic one, trailing behind in the event of a medical emergency. but on august 8th as the president and first lady were leaving to celebrate mr. obama's 50 second birthday, medic one ran out of gas. >> fire officials concerned that the vehicle was towed to apparatus division and is now being repaired off site. the crew should have but did not fill up the tank thatdy. sources say the bigger issue is the fuel gauge had been broken for months and had not been repaired. >> why did it run out? was it a faulty gas gauge. how long did they know. >> for months d.c. councilman has been critical of the department for not quickly addressing a fleet in disrepair. >> this is just an exampl
. >> the big chill between the u.s. and russia may be heading for the deep freeze. president obama has officially canceled his one-on-one meeting with vladimir putin. >> john: canceled? wow, that's a big diplomatic slap in the face, a dip move, if you will. ( laughter ) although if the president really wanted to hurt putin he would have said he was coming and just stood him up. trust me, that hurts a lot more. or if you wanted to be more passive aggressive the president could have said let's meet somewhere that's not technically in russia like, i don't know, moscow airport. ( cheers and applause ) look, we all know-- we all know why this meeting was canceled, right. >> president obama formally canceled next month's meeting in moscow with russia's president vladimir putin. why? >> missile defense, human rights, that controversial law there that bans gay relationships and a lot of concern about how it's going to impact the olympics in sochi. >> john: oh, that's right because russia will not allow a hint of homoswullity in an event where you either win a skin-tight leotard or sparkly tuxe
," it continues -- what is your take on this? says it is another setback for the obama administration possum limitation of the affordable care act. last night the white house announced a one year delay and enforcement of the law. republican caller, you are up first, nancy. why would any person made this health-care law and the confidence that ye have? the legislative reports that not even meet. there is an old saying -- somebody pays. this country is falling apart. thank you, c-span. host: have you always opposed the health-care law? caller: i haven't. we are a blessed country. this tweet -- mark in florida, democratic caller, go ahead. caller: hello. am amment is, s -- i democrat. back in 2010 we should have passed complete socialized medicine. this hybrid plan is comp located. resident obama had the votes in the house and senate in 2010 to do that. this is ridiculous. pay $6,300 for prescription medicine next year. get the average person cannot afford that. host: do you think the complexity of the law has led to all of these delays? supporters say that this is what happens when you pass a

obama and our incredible and amazing leader congresswoman nancy pa loes si, in march of 2010, president obama signed the comprehensive health reform that we probably have heard a lot in the last couple of years. it is the patient protection and affordable care act which many people referred to as the aca or obama care which is something that we have affectionately appropriated because the term was use ined a derogatory way, we think it's a positive way, this law does many things but perhaps most importantly, it makes preventive care more accessible and more affordable for so many americans and i'm excited to be here to begin a series of hearings that we will be holding on the affordable care act so that we have in san francisco a smooth as transition and implementation as possible. today's hearing will focus on how the aca and our local health care security ordinance work in tandem to make health care and health insurance truly accessible to as many san franciscans as possible. you know, the thing about the health care security ordinance, it was really an example of how san franciscans
's gotten so bad that calling obama an american-hating communist despot is hardly the worst of it. take for instance what we saw over the weekend in missouri when a rodeo clown put on an obama mask, prompting the announcers to mock and insult the president. one audience member said it was like something out of a klan rally. chanting obama is 47% negro, chanting bye-bye black sheep. and in orlando earlier this month, the president and first lady were recently greeted with signs that said kenyan go home. renewing calls for impeachment and investigations into the president's birth certificate, two issues that some read as veiled attacks on the president's race. the recent from blake farenthold from texas. >> unfortunately, the horse is already out of the barn on this, on the whole birth certificate issue. the original congress when his eligibility came up and looked into this. i'm not sure how we fix it. >> you want more? representative ted yoho, a representative from south florida at a recent town hall that he too supports the birther movement. >> if it is truly illegal, he shouldn't be t
success, all it takes to perceive for the future is to get the obama administration to recognize that it's a unique program and make some regulatory allowances unique for its design, this should not be controversial, healthy san francisco has a [inaudible] for healthy care reform and our national representative ares at the forefront of making the aca as strong as they could, but during this, we will ensure the health of san francisco remain a model for others to follow and doesn't allow us to enroll backwards. some people currently receive coverage through healthy san francisco will require for medi cal care and many will not, we estimate 3 to 4 million californians will remain uninsured even after the aca is fully implemented at the same time public hospitals will face cuts and dsh payment and the alignment fund, employers payment under health care sans fra*ns will be crucial. thank you, sir. >> thank you, sir, i'm going to read a few more names and i apologize if i mispronounce your name. (calling speaker names). go ahead. >> good afternoon, everyone, i just want to start out by apprec
, but that is a tough one. the obama department justice hasn't delivered and the proxy fight that she can talk to black democrats and talk about racial injustice that is a safe space for her. this is where she is headed. >> it is a sweet spot when it come tots brass tasks of electorial politics. it is a two- fer, chris. listen to what she had to say recently. >> in the weeks since the ruling, we have seen an unso manically rush to enact and enforce laws to make it harder for millions of fellow americans to vote. texas moved forward with a voter id that the federal court invalidated and it would allowed a consoled weapon's permit as a valid id but not a student id. florida is purging the voter rolls and disporportionately affect minority voters and memories of a 2,000 election and scores of disinfranchised voters. legislation in north carolina it is the greatest tips of voter restriction. no more same day registration and extending voting hours to accommodate long lines and stricter voter id requirements and those by college and public assistance agencies. >> a lot of folks will listen to that and say g
